One of CELLTR’s primary goals is supporting faculty members in their pursuit of better understanding the needs of students for whom English is an additional language. In spring of 2018, CELLTR collaborated with the Institute for Study of Teaching and Learning in the Disciplines on Inquiring into Your Multilingual Classroom: An Integrated Seminar Series and Grants Program to offer $24,000 of grant funding for faculty inquiry projects. Dr. Roumi Ilieva, Associate Professor of Education has led this initiative on behalf of CELLTR.
